Sublime views and beautiful explanations: The art and craft of organization theory
2010 (English)In: Academy of Management 2010 Annual Meeting - Dare to Care: Passion and Compassion in Management Practice and Research, AOM 2010, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
To create a generative theory that provides beautiful explanations and sublime views requires both a crafts and an art approach to scientific theorizing. The search for generativity leads scholars to perform various theorizing moves between the confines of simple, yet eloquent beauty, and the ranges of rich, yet defamiliarizing sublimity. The quality and trajectories of these moves rely on theorists' emerging appreciation of the devices, traditions, and texts of their field of inquiry.
